Flash Player Support for WebOs to Stream video content from anywebsite

Recommended Posts

Hi,

LG webOS also needs Flash Player Support  to Stream video content from any website. So that if some apps are not available then  one can visit the website and stream contents directly from the webOS browser.

Thanks

Please see the many, many, many other posts on this issue.

Flash is never going to happen on webOS (or Samsung Tizen), Flash is as another poster put it 'already in its coffin'.

Adobe has officially said it is killing Flash in 2020, no one in their right mind at LG is going to waste time and money supporting a hideously out-dated piece of buggy bloaty security nightmare piece of software that has been superseded by other better, slimmer, securer software.

If the site you want to watch uses Flash contact the web-master and invite them in to the 21st century...  Hell they could even use Adobe Muse to create the site.   Oh hold on Adobe has just killed that off as well.  Do you see the theme on Adobe web products going on here?

It really is insane how much this gets asked, considering it's the exact same issue that people have been dealing with on their mobile devices for a decade and the answer has never changed.

      Hi all,
      I have a question in using SmartShare on LG WebOS 2.0 (my LG TV is 43UF770T, a 2015 model).
      Recently I often use the TV to view pictures from files located in my NAS through DLNA capabilities in SmartShare app. I found out that when I view pictures with resolution smaller than 4K, then the pictures are shown in the center of the TV screen and cannot be shown full screen (automatic best-fit). This is quite annoying because when viewing older photos taken from old phones with 1920 x 1080 resolution for example, then the picture will look small because it is not shown full screen.
      For comparison, when viewing video files, the TV automatically resizes the images until best-fit full screen, i.e. video with smaller resolution than 4K still shown full screen. This is exactly what I want.
      Does anyone here know how to get full screen image shown for smaller pictures (auto resize upscale to best fit full screen), just as with video files in SmartShare?
       
      Many thanks in advance.

      I got a new C7 but no Direct TV Now App.  It been a whole year since the launch and is a major channel app  for Smart TV like Web OS to release.  Why does LG want to force their owners to use a third party streaming box like Apple TV, Amazon Fire or Roku?  "LG should go big or go home!" meaning LG's Web OS should have all the main apps in their inventory and not have their customers to go outside LG to buy another third party streaming device in order to be complete their viewing interests.
